Here Comes Peter Cottontail

Happy Spring, sweet friends! Can you believe Easter is just around the corner? My how the time flies! However, not to worry…this week I am joining my tablescaping friends to bring you our Easter tables. This fun tour is being hosted by the wonderful and talented Chloe at Celebrate and Decorate. You will find a schedule of this week’s participants at the end of this post.

My newly acquired Staffordshire bunnies and pretty chintz table linens became the theme for my Easter table. The bunnies were purchased at an estate sale last fall, and I have been anxiously waiting to display them in my spring decor.


Several years ago, I found these plates at HomeGoods. They are by Andrea by Sadek and are a reproduction of a late 18th century Chinese export porcelain collected by Harold S. Vanderbilt.

Pickings were slim at my local grocery store for spring flowers. I chose to go with one type of flower…raspberry colored alstroemeria. The color picks up the same floral shade in the chintz table linens. I love alstroemeria for its longevity.


Each napkin is tied with a pearl napkin ring.


Thank you so much for your visits and comments. Lately, I have been absent and for that I want to apologize. Sometimes, family life can get a little hectic. I promise to post more. In fact, I have three posts ready to go. Later this week, I will be sharing my entry adorned for spring. It is one of my favorite areas to add seasonal touches. Next week, I will show you some updates to the living room, and I will be joining some of my blogging friends to bring you our spring home tours.

This week, please be sure to visit my tablescaping friends. Their endless talent always inspires me. I know you will be greeted with lots of gorgeous inspiration for your holiday tables. May you all have a very happy and blessed day, friends!

  12. Shannon, I’m just loving your Andrea plates! Blue and white is so classic, and they have the added touch of color with the floral motif. Your cranberry alstroemeria bouquet coordinates so well with the plates, tablecloth and bunnies. What a great estate sale score you got with those bunnies! They are perfect for your Easter table. It’s always a pleasure hopping with you! Happy Easter!

  13. Shannon, I love your bunnies. I didn’t know that there were Stratfordshire bunnies. They are perfect with the dishes. The raspberry flowers are just the right color to compliment the bunnies, the plates and the linens. You’re a great one to start off the Easter blog hop.

  15. Shannon, I really enjoy how you mix your patterns in this tablescape. You picked up on the colors so beautifully too and your pieces look so gorgeous together. Your “floppy-ear” Staffordshire bunnies are such a classic as well as the pearl napkin rings. The burgundy colors really come through in contrast to the cobalt blue. Such elegance to this table. So beautifully done.
